Existing-Home Sales Falter 1.7% in June

Lot's of good information in here but a couple of GREAT takeaways:

1. For Sellers: Inventory is still low, so home prices continue to rise at a slow, but steady rate from 2018. Also, interest rates are low, so there's still LOTS of buyers, taking advantage of the drop in rates. For homes that are priced appropriately, marketed aggressively, and in good shape, they seem to be moving in less than a month.

2. For Buyers: Inventory seems to be going up (generally), so there's still plenty of homes out there. When you couple this with near all-time low interest rates, this is still a GREAT time to buy.

Winning in a Competitive Market

Today's Real Estate Market is as 🔥HOT🔥 as it's ever been, and Home Buyers are finding that there's LOTS of competition with other buyers. A couple of months ago, I had clients who found the home of their dreams. The problem: They were one of 15 (yes, that's FIFTEEN) other buyers who made an offer on the same property. In the end, my client's offer was the one that was selected - not because they offered the best price, but because we deployed a strategy that made their offer the STRONGEST offer in terms of what the Seller was seeking. So, how did we do it? Very simply, we found the Seller's motivation; listened to what they wanted; evaluated what we were willing to do and acted accordingly.

There are many things that buyers can do to get an edge on the competition. In the video below, Paul Stivers, Your Mortgage Expert and I talk about some of those strategies.

With interest rates at near all-time lows, today is STILL a great time to buy. If you're in the market, or know of someone looking to buy or sell, please share this video with them - they'll thank you for it.

Paralysis by Analysis

Buying a 🏡 home 🏡should be an easy and FUN process, but with the Real Estate Market as 🔥HOT🔥 as it is, there's bound to be competition. The key: Don't over analyze. Paralysis by Analysis can cost if you're not careful.

Check out the story in my blog below and see how my clients almost made that mistake, but instead, ended up in the home of their dreams‼️

I don't normally mix my Business with Personal on Facebook, but I thought this was worth posting - Good info, along with a plug for a Community Service event I'm hosting with Paul Stivers of Embrace Home Loans.

For my Northern Virginia Friends: The results of our last seminar were so overwhelming we decided to do this on a monthly basis. This Saturday, April 27th - from 10:30 am to noon, we're hosting a Homebuyer Seminar. This seminar will take you through the step-by-step process of buying a home, discuss how to give you the "edge" in a very competitive market, and walk you through the loan process. Here's the best part: It's FREE with NO PRESSURE and NO OBLIGATION!

If you're in the market for a new home, or you think you may be buying in the future, this is a MUST attend event for you!

For everyone outside of Norther Virginia: As a Realtor working with a Brokerage of 16,000 agents - all under one umbrella - in all 50 states, I've got professional relationships across the Nation and have already helped people in numerous States. If you're interested in this type of seminar, please let me know - I'll be glad to help.

Last note: Almost everyone on my page knows of someone who can benefit from this information. Whether in Northern Virginia, Illinois or some other part of the country - please "share" the info on your page - it's a GREAT opportunity to help a friend.

Thanks in advance and have a FABULOUS day!

As a follow up to my video with Karen E. Daily Ekofo last week, Paul Stivers, Your Mortgage Expert and I talk about how the best rates in home loans don't always mean you're getting the best value. On the other hand, sometimes the lowest rate IS the best value. The question to ask is, "how do you know?"

Check out the video below, or for a more in-depth overview of the lending process, as well as the entire Home Buying Process, you may want to consider attending our Beans & Dreams Homebuyer Seminar this Saturday.
